and the president is unlikely to order a strike while those inspectors are still on the ground. sean? >> jennifer, thank you. joining me now kentucky senator rand paul. thank you for being with us. >> glad to be with you, sean. do you think this is a wise decision and do you think that the president needs congressional aprove al? >> absolutely he needs congressional approval. the constitution is cleave r on this subject. we vested the power to go to war in congress. without question congress should vote on this and he is going against the constitution and it will be an unlawful act if he takes military action without having them vote on it. >> i think these words are important. this was before they took office. joe biden says he would impeach somebody that would do what he was about to do. >> i was chairman judiciary committee i teach this this is something i know. i got together and to write a piece pointing out the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against 70 million people unless we are attacked. and if he does, i would move to impeach him. the house obviousl
pled the fifth. >> well, sean, one of the important things is that the more we see lois lerner as at the center of a number of points, the people below her in cincinnati and washington were sending information to her and she was saying stop, don't do anything. she's part of the discussion with the political-appointed office of the chief consul, and as you say, she took the fifth when we simply wanted to ask her what she knew and when she knew it. and when you see that she circumvented the official mail in private -- i hate to call it private, but in using non-government e-mail accounts for government-type business or communications with other individuals and agencies such as the fec or the s.e.c., it raises concerns about what she was really up to. >> first of all, would this be illegal what she's done? do you think she's been obstructing justice? if in fact she was using a personal account? is that legal? >> it's an odd law. the federal records act requires that all this information be gathered. but there's no explicit penalty. it's not a crime you can go to jail for for simpl
, sean. this is not about republicans versus democrats anymore. this is hurting all americans. what own view labor unions, workers for the irs coming out against this, workers sent up to capitol hill to calm people down, you realize how much it's already hurting our country. for me this is the last best chance. we have to do this. if we don't at leeftz try to do this, the impact it's going have on our economy, some of it is going to be irreversible. >> and it's costing billions. the president got rid of the employee mandate that's costing $12 billion. >> think about the people who have health insurance now and they're happy with it. they're going to lose that health insurance. they have a doctor they've been seeing for the last 15 or 20 years. won't be able to keep going to that doctor. i think of working-class americans who are right now work 40g hours a week that because of obama care are going to be cut back to 29 hours a week. i think about the small businesses that want to expand and grow but are afraid to do so because it wows trigger the obama mandate. i've met and talked to thes
amendments," mark levin from his bunker. sir, how are you? >> i'm good, how are you, sean? >> i guess next they'll be singing songs to castro after this, mark. >> yeah, why not? i mean, we're adopting the castro agenda, aren't we? obama care is a -- not only is it a complete disaster, but i'm afraid, sean, we're never going to get rid of it. because the republicans don't want to get rid of it. and instead of taking on obama and taking on the left, they're taking on the conservatives and the constitutionalists and attacking them, telling us to wait until tomorrow and the next day. these french republicans, they are always surrendering. and the fact of the matter is, if they're not going to aleast attack the discretionary funding or use the power of the purse in the house to pass a continuing resolution that funds part of the government, but not this part of the government, what's left? once this thing is instituted, it's not going to implode. i hear this, oh, the law is going to implode. have you ever heard of an imploding law? >> no, never. >> you have to repeal a law. you have to defund a
paid for using chemical weapons. for war crimes. by the way, sean. the civilian slaughter is also war crimes. we've sat by and done nothing to really counteract that, or punish that type of war crime. again, this point in time for america to start to lead -- this president to lead. to come before congress and get the approval of congress to do this, he should be able to make this case, i think if he tries to make it, he'll get the boot from congress. >> thank you for being with us. appreciate it, joining me with reaction to this developing story. ann coulter is with us. two big questions i have here. if they're not going for regime change, we have two big questions before us, number one, we have the israelis. now, if iran and syria are saying if they get a cruise missile attack, they're going to attack israel. is the president prepared to defend them? >> no. >> and number two. >> let's start with that one. >> wait a minute. we have to consider that. and what's the point then of lobbying missiles -- >> it's very depressing talking about foreign policy, whenever a democrat is president,
questions on a wide variety of issues. welcome to the special edition of hannity. i'm in tonight for sean. earlier, our commander in chief spent most of his time at the podium talking about how he plans to have more trans papercy in his administration when it comes to the nsa surveillance program and while the obama administration would like all news outlets to spend their valuable air time to focus on his meager attempt to, quote, restore the public's trust, there was one key topic the president seemed to gloss over. the failing economy. and folks, let's be honest. at the end of the day, that is the most pressing issue facing americans today. joining me now with reaction, radio talk show host, fox news contributor leslie marshall and republican strategist, noel, ladies, good evening. >> good evening. >> so leslie, let me throw it to you and let's look at the number of full time jobs versus part-time jobs added in july. and what this really means to the american people when productivity, 1978 levels, tepid at best recovery, why isn't the president speaking up on the economy? where's the p
. why are you so offended by this? >> well, sean, first, let me thank you for having me here. >> you're very welcome. and i am not -- i'm no longer the chairman of the missouri legislative black caucus. i am the chairman of the democratic caucus. >> i apologize. >> i am -- i believe that we kind of centered this around the rodeo clown. in my opinion, the rodeo clown is only a scapegoat here. i may not even agree with banning this guy for life for doing any -- from doing any more rodeos. but i'm offended because here in missouri, we are engaging in a directive culture that says it's okay to do these types of things. >> explain in more detail what offends you. >> it offends me that anyone would make a mochrie in that way of the president of the united states. >> really? >> and i am under the opinion that it's more. it was a racial content. >> how was it racial? >> i mean -- >> how is it racial? >> sean, you didn't -- i heard you say a few things. but you didn't say what someone walked up to the clown and played with his lips. i mean, it's offensive, whether it's barack obama or george
and politics can fix what's wrong with america. glad to have all of you guys there. >> i know you're sean spicer. i know that any. let me start with you, republicans are fight right now, particularly in the house and senate whether or not to de-fund obamacare even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea or bad idea? >> in general a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obamacare. we recognize the fact more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up, the problems continue with the implementation of obamacare. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic how to make that happen. some people believe we can de-fund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. if we can get resolution it should be done, i think they agree it should be de-funded and what's the most effective way to do it. that's where the breakdown occurs. everyone wants to get to the same place but how to get there. >> a l

, christopher lane. welcome to "hannity" i'm david webb in tonight for sean. late last week, prosecutors say these three teens hunted down, shot and killed christopher lane for quote fun. and now a new report in the daily column might explain part of their motivation. the article explains that one of the alleged killers, james francis edward jr., posted racial statements on twitter. and according to the daily collar "edwards' social media activities are still on stark display and show the teen glorifying hiphop, violence and sex, pictures on facebook also show edwards and luna wearing gang colors, flashing gang signs, a couple of tweets also suggest that edwards was not fond of white people. on april 29th he tweeted "90% of white ppl are nasty #hatethem." earlier today, a fox news producer spoke with the stephens county, oklahoma district attorney. he said he will not focus on the shooting as being a hate crime but would rather stick to the murder charges. joining me with reaction are fox news contributor, former florida congressman allen west, and my friend fox news political analyst ron wi
